The heartbroken parents of an online influencer have attacked her “sex guru” boyfriend after she died in a horrific motorbike crash on the tropical island of Bali.
Russian Anastasia Tropitsel, 18, suffered fatal head injuries when her Kawasaki Ninja 250 “wobbled” and touched a bike ridden by her lover Viktor Maydanovich, 30, before careering into a roadside fence.
Disturbing images of the crash have since been social media showing her body on the tarmac, with her arms and legs bent.
Some reports following the tragic accident suggest she was filming at the time of the crash.
Her parents have said that Maydanovich – who they had tried to persuade their daughter to dump – is a follower of controversial Russian sex trainers detained two years ago in Thailand.
The parents also revealed that they regretted that they had failed to “save our daughter” from his sway after she met the Ukrainian when she went into lockdown with him in Bali during the coronavirus crisis.
“He lived at her expense,” posted her father Andrey Zubrin, a cardiologist, and his wife Oksana Zubrina.
“Wobbling is blamed, but why the f*** did you give her a bike that was four times bigger than her.
“She was not capable of riding it.
“This was a child in front of you.”
A friend claimed Maydanovich – who now styles himself a motorbike instructor – was trained “in the art of professional seduction” and took advantage of the wealthy school leaver after she went to Bali to boost her social media which had more than one million followers.
Maydanovich was revealed by Anastasia’s parents as one of those initially detained by Thai police at a controversial seminar in Pattaya run by “sex gurus” Alex Lesley, real name Alexandr Kirillov – a former mathematician with a cult-like following of young women, and Nastya Rybka, real name Anastasia Vashukevich, now 38 and 30.
A video shows Kirillov at the sleazy Pattaya training course.
Attendees were “given certificates in sexual skills after completing the training course” run by experienced instructors, reported the Bangkok Post.
Kirillov and Vashukevich were detained in Pattaya after claims she was on board a Russian oligarch’s yacht when she witnessed secret discussions between metals tycoon Oleg Deripaska, who had known links to Paul Manafort, former head of Donald Trump’s election campaign, and top Vladimir Putin lieutenant, Sergei Prikhodko.
The Vashukevich claims were seen at the time as indicating a secret back channel between the Kremlin and the Trump campaign.
Maydanovich was quickly released in Thailand and acted to seek bail for his mentors Kirillov and Vashukevich.
Meanwhile, a former lover of Maydanovich, who was seduced by him aged 18 claimed that “this person purposefully targeted young girls with fragile brains for himself”, according to Moskovsky Komsomolets.
“He told me about esotericism, and said I was the embodiment of an earthly angel… that I was special,” she said.
“I fear that Anastasia (Tropitsel) bought the same chat-up lines.”
Her parents separately claim an unknown person in Bali had repeatedly sought to access their dead daughter’s bank account since the tragedy.
The young millionaire is due to be cremated on Thursday June 25, with her parents unable to attend due to travel restrictions linked to the global coronavirus pandemic.
“We cannot say goodbye to our daughter,” said her father.
Her mother said: “She changed the lives of millions of people who will always be grateful to her.
“It is very hard for me now.
“We cannot even go to her and take her on her last journey, as the borders are closed.”
The social influencer been a blogger since the age of 12 and boasted how she “became a millionaire at 15” from her successful internet presence.
She told her million-plus young followers: “I inspire you to do what you can’t.
“I grow your wings and send you to go freelance.”
Her father warned her in his final message that her boyfriend “pulls you down” but she accused the cardiologist of “burning” her emotionally and betraying her.
Maydanovich posted after the fatal crash: “My beloved girl is not with us.
“Please, my friends, say your last farewell to her with your good thoughts and meditations.
“It is very important.
“(Anastasia) was moving at a speed of 80-100 kilometres per hour along a major road, where everybody goes at such a speed.
“She always rode very safely and accurately.
“Then her bike started wobbling.”
